    So the Twitter pervert Anthony Weiner has been caught with his internet pants round his ankles yet again. There he was, ahead amongst Democrats vying to become New York Mayor, and with the worst timing possible, a young woman reveals that Mr Weiner – or Carlos Danger as he prefers – was sending her dirty pictures and dirty messages less than a year after he resigned from Congress for sending dirty pictures and dirty messages. Oh and for serially lying about it as well. In an attempt to rescue his political ambitions yet again, his long-suffering wife stood by him...

    The State Department seems to have a sexual exploitation problem on its hands. Three weeks ago we learned from a State Department whistleblower who works inside the Inspector General office that officials interfered with internal investigations into sexual misconduct. That misconduct included a US Ambassador soliciting sexual favors from prostitutes and minors. Now, we're learning a U.S. Embassy official has been removed for allegedly trading visas for sexual favors. Charles Johnson has more: A State Department officer has been accused of selling visas for sex and money in what may have been a massive human trafficking operation, The Daily Caller...

    VALPARAISO — A 12-year-old faces two counts of resisting law enforcement for his alleged actions when he refused to clean up spilled milk in the Ben Franklin Middle School cafeteria. A police officer was helping supervise the lunch period on Tuesday, because both the principal and assistant principal were in a meeting, and the boy got into a confrontation with a school staff member. After refusing to wipe up the mess, according to the police report, the sixth-grader refused to sit and wait for the other students to return to class so the staff member could deal with him individually....

    Telegraph ^ | 3/3/11 | Tim Ross
    Surgeons, cancer specialists and mental health services are failing to see elderly patients as individuals and are too ready to make “snap judgments” on the basis of age, according to Paul Burstow, the care services minister. He told The Daily Telegraph that the health and social care systems will be forced to comply with new rules outlawing age discrimination, which are expected to come into force next year. Pensioners who believe they have been denied the treatment they need, or neglected on hospital wards in favour of younger patients, could even be entitled to take legal action against health trusts

    The University of California Board of Regents and senior UC executives will gather at UCSD today for three days of meetings. We'd like to use this opportunity to urge them in the bluntest fashion possible to get their act together. The combination of blitheness, arrogance and denial seen in UC leaders' reaction to several recent scandals must be replaced by candor and reform. The latest scandal was the slap on the wrist given to Winston C. Doby, UC vice president for student affairs, after an internal investigation showed he had acted improperly in pushing UC Merced officials to create a...
